Developmental Screenings for Kids
Curious how your child is developing? From birth to age 5, a child's brain develops faster than any other time in life, so it is important to support healthy development.
The Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3) is an assessment tool that helps parents get a helpful look at the growth and development of their child across 5 developmental areas:
- gross motor
- fine motor
- problem solving, and
Once completed, parents are provided activities that promote healthy development. They are also notified of all the milestones the child has reached as well as any milestones they may not be meeting and need extra support on.
IEHP offers developmental screening for young children (ages 0-5) living in the Inland Empire. To request developmental screening for your child, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Immunizations (vaccines) protect adults and children against outbreaks of polio, mumps, and other diseases that can make them very sick or even cause death.
How do vaccines work?
Vaccines train the body to fight germs that cause disease. When exposed to disease, the body will know how to fight and kill the germs before they cause health problems. This is called immunity against disease.
Why so many vaccines?
Vaccines are needed in all stages of life. Many are given to infants and young children who need them the most to Grow Well. Vaccines protect against diseases such as:
- Influenza (Flu)
- Measles, mumps, rubella
- Varicella (chicken pox)
- Pertussis (whooping cough)
For a complete list of shots, see the Recommended Immunization Schedule for Persons Aged 0-18 (PDF) and Immunization Brochure (PDF).
